Bishop’s Move joins Nick Hewer

Jan 11 | 2012

Bishop’s Move recently helped Sussex Downs College AS students as part of Global Entrepreneurship Week 2011.

Chris Marshall, Bishop’s Move Marketing Director, was joined by a number of other local businesses at the event at which Nick Hewer – Lord Sugar’s right-hand-man in the hit BBC show, The Apprentice – provided a keynote speech to the college’s business students.

Adviser to Lord Sugar and PR expert, Nick has recently been filming the ‘Young Apprentice’ which has been broadcast on BBC1. He supported the Lewes students by reviewing a range of business opportunities that they have developed as part of Enterprise Week. The event unites local businesses and students in a real-life entrepreneurial challenge and provides an extremely valuable learning experience. 

Representatives from Bishop’s Move participated in lessons, offering advice and guidance to the students as they prepared their business plans. In 2010, the financial support offered by the sponsors meant that Sussex Downs College loaned the groups money to get their businesses over the ground and consequently saw them sell their products at their own Christmas fair.

Chris Marshall, Bishop’s Move Marketing Director commented:We are happy to help Sussex Downs’ students during Global Entrepreneurship Week. Initiatives like this introduce students to the excitement and inspiration of a new commercial venture, and we firmly believe in the values and skills it promotes.”
